On-site restaurant beloved by travelers and locals alike
Daily facilities fee
Sitting within walking distance of bustling Dupont Circle, Hotel Madera is a member of the Kimpton brand, and it's a convenient home base for city exploration with the brand's signature flair. The hotel's 82 guest rooms are dressed in bright patterns accented by warm brown hues and come equipped with iHome docking stations, flat-panel TVs and sofas. The property also supplies all the necessities for a yoga workout and a variety of amenities for pets. Despite all its offerings, recent guests felt that the experiences could have been better; some guests cite disappointing encounters with staff members, while others say that if it weren't for the trendy decor, the Kimpton Hotel Madera would lack personality. On the other hand, the hotel's restaurant, Firefly, is a favorite between locals and travelers alike, serving American comfort food in a warm, inviting ambiance.

Critic Reviews



Located just south of a vibrant Dupont Circle, this tranquil hotel provides the perfect respite after an evening restaurant and club hopping along P Street and Connecticut Avenue.



A 2013 renovation held on to the Madera’s overall earthy vibe but switched out animal prints and dark woods, replacing them with colorful Polynesian accents.

Travel + Leisure


Housed in a 1960s building, the hotel has a tiny, banquette-lined lobby where the staff provides complimentary morning coffee, evening wine, and late night milk and cookies.


This 82-room boutique may lack amenities — there's no on-site fitness center and not much of a business center — but the can-do staff, up-to-date guest quarters, jewel of a restaurant, and vibrant neighborhood location add up to a solid value in Dupont Circle.

Washingtonian Magazine


This Kimpton hotel themes itself as 'conscious living' and its name, Madera, is Spanish for 'wood.' It is an eco-friendly, Green Seal-certified hotel, and it was a pioneer on green initiatives for Kimpton hotels nationwide.
